|Last updated on January 17, 2013|
North Shore Elder Services is a private, not-for-profit agency with a team of specialists making life easier for elders and those who care for them. We offer information, support and solutions.
North Shore Elder Services has provided thousands of families with answers on aging. We primarily serve the communities of Danvers, Marblehead, Middleton, Peabody and Salem. We offer services to elders and those who care for them, including in-home care, home-delivered meals, health benefits advice, money management, support for family caregivers, referrals and more. There are a number of additional services available that can significantly enhance the quality of life for elders and provide much needed support to those who care for them.
Elders who need assistance with the activities of daily living can choose from one or many services to help them remain independent and safe in their own home.
Home Care Services include, housekeeping, meals on wheels, grocery shopping, personal care, adult day health and more. Our Family Caregiver Support Program empowers caregivers by providing education, support and services. North Shore Elder Services offers a variety of volunteer opportunities which supplement and extend services to elders.
North Shore Elder Services, Inc., (NSES) was founded in 1976 as a private, not-for-profit, 501-C-3 organization serving primarily low income, and frail older people and their families on the North Shore. Our planning and service area includes the communities of Salem, Peabody, Middleton, Marblehead and Danvers. The primary goal of the agency is to assist elders to live independently, and with dignity in the community.
As an Area Agency on Aging and a state designated Aging Service Access Point founded in 1976, NSES is responsible for planning, coordinating and advocating for comprehensive, community-based services to meet the short and long-term needs of older people and their families. As such, we provide Information Services about a variety of resources such as nursing homes, adult day health centers, nursing assistance, legal services, meals-on-wheels, nursing home pre-admission screening, personal care assistance, support for caregivers, nursing home ombudsman(advocacy), and money management. We offer free, in-depth telephone consultation so that seniors may find appropriate services. NSES belongs to a national network of 670 Area Agencies on Aging, which means we can put a person in touch with our counterparts across the country. North Shore Elder Services is governed by a Board of Directors comprised of representatives from the local communities in which we serve. The role of the Board is to establish corporate policy and assure the agency is meeting its goals.
NSES employs case managers who arrange, authorize and oversee a variety of in-home services for low income, frail elders. These home care services supplement what elders are able to do for themselves and what can be provided by their families. NSES is one of 27 aging service access points in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.
